•1kg chicken fillet or deboned thigh (cut into large cubes)
•2 tablespoon lemon juice
•1 teaspoon ginger paste
•1 tablespoon crushed garlic
•1 teaspoon chilli powder
•1 teaspoon salt
•¼ teaspoon turmeric powder
•1 ½ teaspoon dhana Jeeru (Cumin) powder
•¼ teaspoon white pepper powder
•½ cup plain double thick yoghurt
•¼ cup grated raw papaya
•1 tablespoon chana flour
•½ teaspoon garam masala
•1 tablespoon tandoori masala
•1 teaspoon chaat masala
•Pinch saffron threads (crushed)
•1 large onion (half finely grated, half finely sliced in rings)
•2 tablespoon oil
•⅓ teaspoon red food coloring
Add ALL ingredients except chicken cubes and half sliced onion into a bowl and mix well. Then add the chicken cubes and mix to combine.
Cover and refrigerate for 4-6 hrs.
When ready to grill, thread the cubes onto skewers.
Cook over charcoal braai (bbq) until cooked through and tender or under a hot oven grill.
Make sure to turn the skewers often to get the chicken done on all sides.
Brush them with some oil occasionally during grilling. It should take about 5-6 minutes per side for them to be done.
Serve with salad, fries and roghni naan.
